This is a good commercial I uploaded. "Ozzie and Harriet" and many other sitcoms of the time only featured about 4 or 5 minutes of advertising per an episode, compare that with many modern shows, which have around 8 or 10 minutes of advertising AND product placement ("Ozzie and Harriet" featured a little product placement, but it was very subtle and often you'd wouldn't notice it).
Harriet Nelson does a good job at promoting the cameras.
